Mr. Paul, a Republican , made that final point. Angered at the huge spending increases at the center of the accord, he delayed passage for hours with a demand to vote on an amendment that would have kept in place the strict caps on spending that the deal raises.

President Donald Trump’s most ardent cable news defender cut away briefly from the president’s Monday night rally in El Paso, Texas, to issue a warning to Republican lawmakers: Don’t back congressional negotiators’ latest border deal.

“On this new, so-called compromise, I’m getting details,” said Fox News host Sean Hannity, referring to the tentative agreement reached by a bipartisan conference committee that would allocate roughly $1.375 billion for physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.

GOP border security negotiator: Chances of another shutdown are 'nil or next to nil'

GOP border security negotiator: Chances of another shutdown are 'nil or next to nil' Rep. Chuck Fleischmann said that there is “no appetite” in the Capitol for a second government shutdown this year. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Asked in an interview on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” about the odds of another partial shutdown over President Donald Trump’s demands for border wall money, Tennessee Rep. Chuck Fleischmann answered that they were “nil, or next to nil.

Hannity being Hannity , this monologue is a full-throated defense of Trump as a man of action and condemnation of the dithering Ryan-led The key advantage of pursuing the budget reconciliation approach for Republican leaders is that they would not have to compromise with Democrats.

But Republicans claim Democrats won’t back a long-term spending plan until Congress agrees to shield hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants from deportation. They’ve made a decision not to go forward on that until we get closer or get a DACA deal .”

“1.3 billion? That’s not a — not even a wall, a barrier?” Hannity said.

“I’m going to tell this tonight and we will get back into this tomorrow,” he continued. “Any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain. Look at this crowd. Look at the country. Look at CBS News, even they say 72 percent of the American people want the heroin to stop, the cartels to stop, the gang members to stop, and those that wish us ill.”

That statistic was an apparent reference to a CBS national poll released last week following Trump’s State of the Union address that showed that 72 percent of those who watched the speech to Congress approved of the ideas the president articulated on immigration.

Hannity’s swift rebuke of what Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) described as “an agreement in principle” echoed the backlash from conservative commentators in December 2018 over proposed government funding measures.

Those detractors, including media personalities Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, viewed any amount of taxpayer dollars less than the president’s $5.7 billion demand for a border wall to be a forfeit by the White House.

Key GOP senator: Border deal a 'down payment' on Trump's wall.
Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby told President Trump Wednesday night that the spending compromise represents just a "down payment" on the border wall Trump wants to build. "I just talked to the President, and he was in good spirits," the Albama Republican tweeted. "I told him that I just signed the homeland security conference report and that it’s a down payment on his border wall. This is only the beginning of a multi-year effort." I just talked to the President, and he was in good spirits.
